For the last couple of workouts, I did basically what I did and cataloged in Saturday’s, directly below. Qi gong breathing exercises, then focus on a few kettlebell drills.

Don’t remember exactly what I did the earlier day, but today’s kettlebell component was:
– Single hand swings, several each side (24 kg)
– LCCJ, several each side (24 kg)
– Windmills, 10 each side (24 kg)

Diet: Fasted since yesterday evening.
Music: Pandora Calm Meditation station.

Two more little PTs from this weekend to document. Both were late in the evening (1930 or later).


Similar to last Sunday’s, this was a simple kettlebell protocol using the 24 kg bell. After warming up with several minutes of loose striking on the heavy bag and floor movements, I did two sets of five minutes of relaxed kettlebell goodness.

First was a diagonal clean and twisted press combo, alternating sides every few reps for five minutes. Then on to swings, alternating hands for the single hand swings, and finishing off with two handed swings. Last minute or so was cool-down with salsa dance moves.

After that was an active meditation aikido style. This is helping stretch out my ankles nicely, as I sit in seiza as long as possible, then bowing (rei) to relieve the pressure for a tic before coming back to sit up.

Music: Pandora mix of Brazilian and samba, finishing with the Calm Meditation station.
Diet: Fasted since breakfast.


Started with qi gong breathing and movements. Then went into the TACFIT Kettlebell “No Effort” day yoga and stretching/recovery. Finished with more of the meditation similar to yesterday’s.
